DETROIT--February 27, 2013: KPIT Cummins (BSE: 532400) (NSE: KPIT), global product engineering partner to manufacturing corporations, has extended its AUTOSAR solution to introduce the world's first AUTOSAR stack compatible to R4.0.3 developed according to ISO26262 quality requirements. The solution includes basic software stack and new comprehensive AUTOSAR Tool Platform based tool chain for ECU configuration.
"We are happy to bring to our customers the world's first complete R4.0.3 compatible BSW stack and tool chain that caters to today's functional safety (ISO26262), multicore and Ethernet needs of automakers and suppliers. Our AUTOSAR specialists ensure that our 'platform software' is developed based on ISO26262. Its ASIL-D compatible processes are successfully deployed and start delivering results in the shortest time as well. We are also working with the entire automotive ecosystem on Revision 4.0.3 solution," said Peter Jakobsson, Business Leader and head of AUTOSAR practice, KPIT Cummins.
This BSW includes AUTOSAR technical safety features such as End-to-End communication protection, memory partitioning, memory & timing protection and e-gas monitor support. Adherence to ISO26262 ensures efficient usage of the E2E protection mechanism and considerable savings in context with switching time, thus accommodating more applications as a result of reduced CPU load.
The editor tool is interoperable ARTOP based on providing an enhanced user experience. This editor's intuitive UI allows importing communication data in various file formats such as ECU extract, DBC, FIBEX, LDF and model based software component data. The user, in a single workspace, can configure different AUTOSAR version projects and can generate reports based on module harmonization, as well as perform real-time dependency resolution and validation of parameters. The tool helps preserve ECU configuration data while changes are being made to the system description.
Over 20 automakers and suppliers worldwide leverage KPIT's deep in-vehicle networking expertise to co-innovate and develop their AUTOSAR based Electrical / Electronic systems. KPIT's AUTOSAR R3.x and R4.x BSW stacks have been approved and are in use by several leading European automakers for successful execution of AUTOSAR based ECU projects.
